Thought I would share with you a kind of morning mantra that has been with me the last few months or so, and has put me on a good vibe since I started it. This one is for all the crazy happy carefree people.
After the usual wake up/ brush teeth/ shower etc. Here are my 3 key steps to starting the day –>
1. Play Samba
2. Sing & dance around the room
3. Focus my mind on these thoughts “Thank-you world for all my blessings. Thank-you for another day, a fresh chance to do something good, a chance to be a better person. Life is beautiful. I will cherish this day.”
Maybe it’s crazy. But trust me, it works. Some days I walk outside smiling like a lunatic!
I want to be one of those people that smiles everywhere they go and infects others with their happiness =)
Indeed, all this traveling would be useless if I didn’t learn to be grateful and rejoice as I step through this world.
Life is fraught with pain, struggle, disappointment.
People have let me down, sought to destroy me, lied to me, over and over again.
Society is obsessed with violence.
Good people are viewed with suspicion.
People will cut off their limbs, sell their bodies and betray their loved ones for money.
We are utterly destroying our planet.
Corporations control human law and human souls.
Sometimes hope seems like one grain of sand in the Sahara desert!
But if that grain is all I have. I’m going to focus on that grain. I’m going to worship that grain until it multiplies and join all the other people that worship that grain too.
When you focus on the good and on the positive, the light will only shine brighter.
We mustn’t let negative people bring us down and destroy us.
The happiest most grateful people I have ever met have known the most pain and have lived in the hardest poorest places.
The unhappiest, least grateful people I have ever met, have all the material things you could dream of.
So why do we think money will make us happy? An extra 1000, 10, 000, 100, 000, 1, 000, 000, 10, 000, 000, 000. It’s all numbers. You can have the power to do so much with that money. But it won’t change a thing if your mind is still wanting more, if you still care about what everyone else thinks, and concern yourself with negativity.
Happiness is yours to be had today!
Love. Forgive. Laugh. Sing. Dance. Rejoice!
